Christians agree that the resurrection of Christ is at the very heart of our faith and theology (1 Cor. 15), yet few are aware of the impressive historical case that can be made for it (which supplements our conviction about it through the Spirit), much less how to articulate it. In this class, Pastor John will delve into one of his favorite subjects, appealing to both his training in New Testament and philosophy, to help bolster your own faith, prepare you to share it, and refine your critical thinking skills in relation to history, Bible, and theology. It will be an intensive, serious but fun class, combining lecture and video-based presentations, and looking at the work of acclaimed scholars like William Lane Craig, Gary Habermas, and NT Wright. Reading assignments involved.
